Welcome to Cariad Pet Food Bank
Helping pet owners in crisis
We don’t think that pet owners in our community should have to face the difficult decision of whether to feed their pets before themselves. That’s why we provide emergency pet food and support to local people. Our mission:
to ensure that pets have access to nutritious food during times of financial hardship
by offering a pet owner a timely, responsive, individual pet food bank service they will continue to receive the comfort, companionship and wellness that pets provide
these measures, in turn, will aid the prevention of a pet being taken into a rehoming centre
Some reasons that you may need to use the pet food bank can be:
A change in benefits
A delay in benefits
You are on a low income
In an economically inactive household
You are on benefits and are finding things hard at the moment
In temporary accommodation/bedsit
Elderly in sheltered accommodation
Fleeing domestic abuse
Not entitled to claim benefits
Unexpected vet bills and you are on a low income
Unexpected large household bills and you are on a low income

** If you are in need please contact us by the How to Apply page. **
Our policy is that no one will be turned away without pet food the first time they visit us but we do operate an eligibility criteria system for future support and you will be advised about this when you apply. Also our “How to Apply “ page helps with this.
We are run by Cariad Pet Therapy, a registered Community Interest Company (Registered number 11656368) based in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. See more about the therapy dog work throughout West and South Wales here.
We started during COVID in December 2020 with funding from the WCVA, this funding ended on October 31st 2021. The pet food bank is a shop based on a residential street in Haverfordwest.
From January - September 2021 we provided 55.066 pet food meals throughout Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.
Throughout the COVID crisis we have manged to stay open thanks to our amazing volunteers and staff. We are careful to follow Government guidelines to keep it as safe as possible for all that volunteer or receive pet food.
If you need help, don’t be embarrassed to ask. We want to help pet owners in our community.
